Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in our "Capitol Notes" conversation

Some Republican state lawmakers are suing Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul, saying he's not complying with laws passed during a lame-duck session late last year. The laws were designed to limit Kaul's powers, along with those of Democratic Gov. Tony Evers. The GOP has asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take the case directly, bypassing the lower courts.  

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, JR Ross of wispolitics.com tells WUWM's Marti Mikkelson that both sides are commenting on the case.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
